I just wanted to follow up on this to provide some clarity for those who come across this question in their search through the complexities of the Dutch Nationality Law. Definitely the reason this question couldn't be fully answered originally was because of my misunderstanding of the Dutch Law which I am now a bit more across (at least for my partner's ...

The procedure is detailed on the IND website. I will try to clarify some misunderstandings while answering your questions but you should refer back to this procedure to know what to do. No, you should get a Schengen visa, free of charge (the Dutch call that a “facilitation visa”). That's because you are covered by the EU freedom of movement and regular ...

I have no direct experience nor any additional information beyond what's on the website but I happened to have had to look into the rules recently and they seem relatively clear to me. If you have been in the Netherlands (and not merely the EU) between your 2-month 2019 trip and your 4-month 2020 trip, none of your stays would trigger them: Since 2015, you ...

The USPS advises you to address such mail to the "country" of "Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba". So you should probably address your mail as something like: Mx. X. [local street or box number] Saba BONAIRE, SINT EUSTATIUS, AND SABA The current pandemic is making worldwide logistics troublesome, and this is probably not a destination to ...

I had the same question and called the ind. Apparently it wouldn’t be useful anymore because you will get a certificate saying that your dutch is A2 level. However after 31/12/2021 they require a diploma with Dutch level B1 , so it will not fulfill the requirement . I know that wasn’t the answer you were hoping for but this is at least was the answer of the ...

No. According to Wikipedia, the citizenship is only transmitted by the (biological) parents and, in the case of non-Dutch mother and Dutch father, the father must acknowledge the child before birth. If you were a minor, you would fall in the following category for the citizenship by option (which is in practice a form of simplified naturalisation): a minor ...

According to the Dutch Tax authorities on joint accounts, when you share a joint account with someone who is not your tax partner, in Dutch: Hebt u een en/of-rekening met iemand die niet uw fiscale partner is? Bijvoorbeeld met een van uw ouders? Geef in uw aangifte dan alleen dat deel van de rekening aan dat van u is. Uw deel van de rekening is uw geld dat ...

We got the answer for this. The law is quite confusing but IND was quite clear: you cannot pursue freelancing fulltime if you are on highly skilled migrant and self-employed visa, so now we either need to find a recognized sponsor or go on a complete self-employed visa. A lot of people commit the same mistake but please learn from our mistake, and make sure ...

As your prospective partner resides in her country of citizenship, you would not be able to join her there under the provisions of European Union law. You should therefore have a look at the IND page for spouse/partner visas. Is there a certain monetary/income requirement for either of us? To register your partnership, no. As an example, have a look at ...

Looking at Amsterdam's website suggests that this is permitted. However, they ask for a declaration that your marriage is not a marriage of convenience (PDF) because of the rights that the marriage will bestow on the non-EU spouse. If you live in a different municipality, you will of course want to find the corresponding information for your municipality ...

The wording is quite convoluted and I am not sure what the precise intent or legal basis for the IND's opinion are but it is quite clear that this article is not meant for your case. If it would apply it would at best be a loophole. The reason I say that is that if the intent was to allow you to regain your original citizenship based on the fact you grew up ...

The law (Wet Studiefinanciering 2000) is not super explicit but does provide that several categories of foreign residents are to be treated like Dutch student as far as tuition is concerned. Several universities explicitely mention residence cards for members of the family of an EU citizen (familielid EU/EER) as one of these categories (e.g. WUR, Maastricht)....

As long as you are not a Dutch citizen, your wife can join you in the Netherlands under EU law. All the restrictions that apply to the spouses of Dutch citizens and third-country citizens do not apply to you. She should travel to the Netherlands without a visa, carrying proof that she is the spouse of an EU citizen. She would then apply for a “Toetsing aan ...

I am not a tax advisor. However, I used to benefit from the 30% ruling and I've been into the same situation. Pre-filling of the tax declaration by the Belastingdienst (tax authority) is a common practice. I think it's done by an automated system and it does not know whether you are exempt from anything. It also happened to me a couple of years ago. I had ...

Once you pass all the integration tests (inburgeringsexamens) you will be eligible to get an integration diploma (inburgeringsdiploma). The diploma does not expire and can be used to apply for permanent residency as well as citizenship. More information can be found on the official website of DUO.

I'm not a lawyer so take my answers with pinch of salt. Answers: You can be "self-employed" and use an umbrella company to have legal rights to stay in NL. The umbrella company even will apply for your 30% ruling. So you don't need to keep two jobs. Having one client is usually the problem when your income is lower than a certain amount. I assume ...

I presume that "Ireland CSP" is actually CSEP. Yes, you can apply for any other visa while CSEP is in process. But please keep in mind, that CSEP is a quite expensive thing, it costs 1000 euro and can be refunded only if not yet processed. Also it has some costs to prepare the docs. I think the sponsor may ask you to pay the prices in case of your ...

I am yet to find a solution for your original problem (essentially getting a Visa Electron as a Dutch resident) but Easyjet seems to have changed their fee structure so that any Dutch credit card should enable you to book a ticket with no additional fee. SEPA direct debit, when offered, should also work with a Dutch bank account.

There are relatively new banking services that operate without physical branches, such as bunq and N26. You can see a comparison of those here. They use the international standard for debit cards. Therefore, they might solve your problem.

A similar question was asked before. Please see my answer here. In principle, since March 2017 students, highly skilled migrants, and scientific researchers are given more room as entrepreneurs. Please see the linked answer for details.
